Have eaten here before it is a modern restaurant with a casual atmosphere. At weekends it can get very busy. The food is very good. The hotel is also excellent with the better rooms overlooking they Stray.

Can't fault this restaurant. The cocktails make a great start - lots of unusual ones, as well as standards, all beautifully presented and delicious. The food doesn't disappoint either, with something to suit all tastes. Friendly and efficient service from knowledgeable staff tops off a great dining experience.

We have eaten here twice and it does not disappoint. The service is great and the food is fantastic. My husband had the sticky toffee pudding with the treacle ice cream and I thought it would be too much but it was absolutely lovely. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

Myself and my fiancé were staying at the West Park Hotel for three nights, and ate dinner in the hotel's restaurant twice. The restaurant has a relaxed vibe with contemporary decor. Background music was just right, and not too loud to overpower conversation. The staff were so friendly and attentive - and efficient, which is important. One of us was celebrating a special birthday and it was a lovely touch to receive flutes of complimentary fizz. The two of us opted for a steak dish and a chicken one the first night - both were delicious and the food beautifully presented. The second night of dining we both chose the burger - neither of us were disappointed and the burger was tasty and well cooked, and came with a nice variety of accompaniments. We breakfasted in the restaurant every morning of our stay and there was a huge choice of hot dishes - which are cooked to order - and the normal fare of cereal, croissants, fresh fruit, toast etc. All delicious, and our breakfast set us up well for the day! Staff throughout were unfailingly pleasant and friendly, and helpful. We will definitely return next time we find ourselves in Harrogate!

Very average food and service. Much worse experience than our previous visits. Made to feel guilty by less-than-helpful staff when we had send various items back (terrible cocktails, cold steak) and had to chase up missing veg side order that eventually arrived when we’d almost finished our main courses - and when it came, it was a small, shallow creme brûlée-style dish with a very small portion of cabbage which was terrible value for money. Extremely disappointing and definitely won’t be rushing back.

What a fantastic evening! First, complements to the entire staff - from the Maitre D, to the bartenders, to the servers - everyone displayed excellent customer service and were the complete professionals. It is rare to find anywhere that has across the board good service without exception and that says so much about how a place is run. And our first request was not easy - we had a reservation for 4 after a day of transatlantic travel and our family from harrogate wanted to join us last minute - making our reservation for 9. The West Park accommodated is without issue and with a smile. We were grateful. The cocktails were excellent and the meal itself was wonderful - everyone enjoyed their dishes. Mezza share plate, fresh farmhouse bread. We loved the sea bass, duck, steak and the kids loved the burgers and sausages. Great meal, great decor/atmosphere and great night at the West Park. We will definitely be back!

I was the first to arrive from our group. I was asked to wait by the bar. I had a toddler with me and she was happy running up and down. Once others arrived I had to find someone to show us to our table.

We ordered our food. Two children’s meals and 4 Sunday roasts. I ordered the soup for my toddler. We had to ask at least 4 times for her soup and when it finally came, I had to ask for bread. By the time her food came we had given her bits of our food, so she no longer wanted it.

One of the roasts was cold. When it came back it was missing a Yorkshire pudding and we had to ask for it. The pork was meant to have crackling, but it was soft and not what was expected. The beef was tasty, but had a lot of fat.

We then decided to order puddings, however after waiting 20 minuets, the children were getting restless and we had to cancel the order.

The front of house were apologetic, and reduced the bill and gave a gift card for any future visit. I just think that they should have had better communication with the kitchen, rather than us having to ask multiple times for a child’s soup.

The food was superb and fairly priced for what it was. However, abhorrent service (being made to wait ten minutes for a table that was ready the whole time) seemed to put a dampener on the evening. I will be returning but would hope for better service next time.

We had a lovely evening with our guests from a London. Not knowing much about West Park other than the refurbishment of the hotel which it has recently undergone, the ambience the food, and the staff were fantastic and a big thumbs up to Brogan who looked after us. We will defiantly be going back again with other relatives and friends.

My husband, myself and daughter booked our Boxing Day lunch a few days before. When we arrived we were kept waiting whilst the hostess and three staff were chatting out of sight. Eventually a waitress clearing tables greeted us. Our food arrived and it was cold. The fresh food came out 15 mins later and it was warm. The restaurant manager came over to take our desert order. When told about the food being cold he said “ That’s not acceptable and I will shout at the Chef!”. We finished our meal and left with no apology or any acknowledgement of poor service. Not what is expected from a restraunt that displays numerous accolades for culinary excellence !!

Christmas Eve treat from husband - booked for 4:30pm to stop cooking and start relaxing and enjoying Christmas. Worked really well. We had a nice drink and some nice fish before the Christmas Day meat feast. I had the fish platter starter as a main and they were cool with that.
Service was a bit haphazard (we had 3 waiters who weren’t co-ordinaring) but it was Christmas Eve and they were super busy. You gotta love West Park. Go try it!

Having previously enjoyed breakfast and afternoon tea at the West Park, we chose it for our Christmas meal with friends. Although the food was good (once it arrived) the service was very poor. To be fair, once my husband had spoken to the duty manager she handled it very well with much improved service and a reduction to the bill but that's hardly the point. We were left feeling that we owed our friends an apology as it was our choice of restaurant. I doubt that we'll be going again.

Return visit to restaurant and again was not disappointed. Starter was the seafood sharing platter which is a generous portion. I had sirloin steak for the main which if I'm being really picky was a little overdone but not enough to spoil the meal, the peppercorn sauce was delicious. My partner had the rib-eye and this was cooked exactly right, he chose the bernaise sauce which again was delicious. A special mention to our waitress Brogan who was great; professional and friendly. A little quiet as it was a Sunday night but overall a lovely night.
